LCP-Nets: A Linguistic Approach for Non-functional Preferences in a Semantic SOA Environment
Abstract: This paper addresses the problem of expressing preferences among nonfunctional properties of services in a Web service architecture. In such a context, semantic and non-functional annotations are required on service declarations and business process calls to services in order to select the best available service for each invocation. To cope with these multi-criteria decision problems, conditional and unconditional preferences are managed using a new variant of conditional preference networks (CPnets), taking into account uncertainty related to the preferences to achieve a better satisfaction rate. This variant, called LCP-nets, uses fuzzy linguistic information inside the whole process, from preference elicitation to outcome query computation, a qualitative approach that is more suitable to business process programmers. Indeed, in LCP-nets, preference variables and utilities take linguistic values while conditional preference tables are considered as fuzzy rules which interde...
